Last year my brother, who is a carpentry whiz, constructed and painted seven bluebird boxes. Tree swallows soon moved into them and raised broods. Late this afternoon, I saw a snowy owl using one of these boxes as a hunting platform. Was it a coincidence that the owl chose a white box to help blend in?
